“Very Diverse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2012

Oldham Street leads off of Piccadilly, it has numerous shops and bar the cash convertors is mostly independant type shopd. Record shops, clothes boutiques, piercing parlours, Oxfam Originals and of course the infamous Afflecks Palace all reside on Oldham Street. further along there's also various vintage stores, fabric & craft supplies... and a couple of pubs /bars including Night N Day Cafe. definitley worth a visit if the Arndale doesn't float your boat (ie stores you can find in every town).

“Rat run”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2012

Intimidating and awash with litter, a mecca for students and smackheads. Its once cool credentials ended with the heyday of the Dry Bar. Promised makeover and Waitrose replacing the Nobles slot machine arcade may improve things

“Oldham Street leads to Oldham Road and then to Oldham”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 December 2011

As a resident of Manchester one inevitably walks along Oldham Street, but it is unremarkable.
